10 Christmas Eve Images
This is a charming collection of Christmas Eve Images and perhaps a few from Christmas morning as well! Most of these marvelous holiday Graphics were scanned from an Antique Scrapbook that actually belonged to my Great Grandmother! I scanned a number of graphics from this book pretty early on, when my blog was still new. Most of those original scans were not the greatest quality, so I have re-scanned them at a much higher resolution for you. So be sure and grab these updated versions! These images have a number of age spots on them and show some wear and tear, I’ve corrected any of the imperfections that were too distracting, but I’ve kept much of the old patina intact. All of these Christmas advertising trade cards were from the Woolson Spice Company and they date to Circa 1891.
Christmas Eve Children Images
Next we have a Christmas Eve Graphic showing 3 little girls, I’m guessing they are sisters. They have used their wooden blocks to spell out “A Merry Christmas” greeting for Santa.
This cute Merry Christmas Image shows 3 children, brothers and sisters, sitting on a little footstool under some Mistletoe. It looks like the older two are taking turns giving the baby a kiss! Outside little Bunnies and Birdies are playing in the snow. Such a sweet scene.
Santa on Christmas Eve Image
Next up we have an image of the man of the hour, it’s Santa himself in a beautiful green robe trimmed with fur. He has a pack stuffed with toys on his back and he’s about to head down the Chimney!
Christmas Eve Decorating Graphic
This cute picture shows a little Toddler with a tiny Christmas Tree slung over her shoulder. She appears to be wanting to do a bit of decorating. Check out the tiny Santa pull Toy that she has!
Christmas Eve Shopping Image
Here we have a cute graphic of a little girl who has been out doing some last minute shopping! She’s wearing a fabulous Red Coat trimmed in Fur, and a matching large brimmed Hat with Ostrich Feathers. She’s got her packages in her arms, they are all tied up with paper and strings!
Christmas Choir Illustration
In this picture we see 5 little Choir Boys singing some Christmas Carols in Church. They are wearing red capes over their white robes. The card is framed up with golden bells and Holly Leaves.
Victorian Christmas Morning Images
This charming picture shows a toddler going through her stocking. I’m not sure if this is Christmas morning, of if she was being sneaky in the middle of the night! Her adorable Dog appears to be keeping an eye on her. So cute!
And lastly we have a brother and 2 sisters on Christmas morning. They have opened there presents and are happily playing with their new toys by the warmth of the fire place. I hope you enjoyed this collection of Christmas Eve Images. I think my Great Grandmother would be happy that I shared her paper treasures with you guys!
Retro Christmas Eve Images
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This one is not part of a set like the other ones above it but I thought it was really fun! This one has more of a retro vibe to it. It must be Christmas Eve as the Stockings are hung on the fireplace mantel!

Thank you for rescanning these for us! They’re so lovely – and I love that they belonged to your Great-Grandmother!
The last one is great. 😀 <3 I hadn't made myself a junk/art journal yet – so have started a Christmas one just for me. Many of your wonderful images will be in it. From your generous freebie collection and from the Graphics Fairy Premium sets. I think I'll just keep working on it all year.
Karen Watson says
Hi Bev, I’m so glad that you started your own journal, that’s wonderful! By the end of next year, I’m sure it will be a wonderful gift to yourself that you will treasure for many years. Have fun creating it!
Your Great Grandmother must be smiling from ear to ear! She would be so proud, Karen! These images are more than cute – most adorable for Christmas Eve. Those choir boys just took my heart! Thank you so much for sharing such lovely memories of your Great Grandmother! What an adorable collection! I love each one!
Karen Watson says
Thank you so much Irene! I’m sure she would be happy that this little collection of hers is bringing people some joy at this time of year. I’m so glad you enjoyed them!
Oh, how precious these are! My favourite one is the first one with the two lovelies at the fireplace. The one all dolled up in red doing her last-minute Christmas shopping is so cute! I love her coat with a matching hat – she looks adorable! I also love the one with the dog looking over her inspection of her presents. Oh, my goodness – all are so cute!
It’s almost Christmas Eve and we are in the middle of a snow storm which has been a blizzard with blowing snow all day long. So, we are in for a white Christmas!
Thanks so much for sharing these with us! Merry Christmas and the best to you and your loved ones throughout this holiday season!
Karen Watson says
Hi Irene, Merry Christmas to you too! I hope your blizzard is over and that you and your family are warm and safe.
